discuss The low-down and skinny on drop-catching domains vs. other acquisition options

Ok, so, I was thinking about all the different options to acquire a domain at a reasonable price-point so I can make a profit off it easily, without it sitting too long and eating up renewal fee's that stack on-top of the initial investment costs.

With that in mind, is drop-catching better than other methods of acquisition or is it more of a personal choice that performs about the same?

For instance, I'm comparing these options:
  1. Hand-Registration
  2. Drop-Catching
  3. Forum Marketplace
  4. Niche Dedicated Marketplace
  5. Registrar with their own marketplace
  6. Whois eMail/phone contact
In your opinion, which of the 6 above is going to have the best return on my investment, with the lowest possible price-point at the time of purchasing it?

Please provide an example or personal experience with details for clarity.
